Bond revoked on suspect in Fentanyl death

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Cody Sebade
Amid new allegations he has shown a "disdain for the Court's authority to bring him to trial," a young man allegedly involved in the Fentanyl overdose of a 17-year-old Clay City High School junior New Year's Day is in trouble again.

According to documents on file at the Clay County Courthouse, the Clay County Prosecutor's Office requested a bond revocation from Clay Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout for Cody Levi Sebade, 18, Clay City, on Sept. 8.

On April 26, Sebade, who was initially charged as a juvenile, was waived into adult court on allegations he illegally provided a Fentanyl Transdermal patch to Haley Bryan, who died approximately one hour later.

Sebade was subsequently charged with class B felony dealing in a Schedule I controlled substance, D felony possession of controlled substance, D felony theft and D felony maintaining a common nuisance.

In May, the court established terms of electronic in-home detention release, which included Sebade have no contact with individuals involved in the matter and enroll and continue counseling for substance abuse. He was allowed to travel to and from work (and school) with his mother (as long as he was not out of her presence at any time) and all medications in the home were to be locked up (in the possession of the mother) and remain unavailable to Sebade.

On Sept. 8, the official paperwork and probable cause affidavit provided to Trout cited Sebade's alleged failure to obey (unspecified) terms of release and commission criminal offenses while out on a reduced bond ($10,000 with 10 percent allowed).

Trout issued an arrest warrant on Sept. 9, and members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department took Sebade into custody the next evening at his home in Clay City.

Meanwhile, the deputies located and were also able to serve an outstanding arrest warrant on John A. "Buddy" Sebade III, for an unrelated incident. John was taken into custody without incident.

Cody remains in custody while awaiting further court proceedings scheduled for this week. A jury trial is tentatively scheduled in this matter for Dec. 13.

What was the unrelated incident that the other person was arrested for? Again, the public likes details.

Perhaps he took the car without his mother present or had prescription meds in his possession or contacted individuals involved.

Personally, I feel it's a shame that his mother bailed him out then altered her own life shuttling him back and forth to school/work .. only to have him break the conditions of his released (into her custody). I hope his actions show her he should have been left in jail.

Yes, it would be nice to have the details ..

I'm sure that those who want to know can go to the court house and look up the details if they have been released for public record. It doesn't say whether the incident is still under investigation or not but then again I am not that curious as to what he did or why he did it. He did it all the same.

Yes, it is a shame for his Mom. You can only do so much for your children and the rest is up to them and the choices they make. He made some very bad ones didn't he!

He's where he belongs.(IMO) He has no remorse in his involvement in that girl's death.
